๐Ÿ˜ผ leave my rocks alone ๐Ÿ’Ž

๐Ÿ‘ฟ a fifteen + pound critter pounced on one of my rock boxes (ย  https://washekoda.blog/2021/10/08/display-box-%f0%9f%9b%a0/) ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  at 2AM (โ„‚๐•ฃ๐•’๐•ค๐•™)


I got that mess sorted ๐Ÿ˜‰

๐•‹๐•™๐•–๐•Ÿ at 2PM during my nap I awaken to what I thought was was ‘rolling thunder’ โšก๏ธ

It was a Polished agate, missed during the ‘pick up’, being used as a hockey puckย  by Emmy Louย  ๐Ÿ˜ธ

Third stage of (pre polish) silicon carbide, waiting for fourth stage of (polish) aluminum oxide … Lapis Lazuli

  1. I share your appreciation for the beauty of rocks. Iโ€™ve only polished Petoskey stones from Michiganโ€™s lower peninsula, though.

  2. I polished the Petoskey stones I have by hand. Finished them off with baby oil. I am particularly fond of them because I picked them up on the shore with my dear friend 20 years ago. Iโ€™ll look for a good report from you.
